Stillman College cancels season opener due to swine flu

TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) - Stillman College has cancelled their home opener against Clark Atlanta University and officials say it is because of swine flu.

Stillman was scheduled to play Clark Atlanta on Saturday in Tuscaloosa.

Tigers Football Coach L.C. Cole says he noticed some of his players were having flu-like symptoms after a morning workout this week. Cole says he felt compelled to cancel the game after he learned that about 37 of his players had become sick. The coach says he does not know how everyone became sick.

Both schools are unable to reschedule the game for another date, so Stillman had to forfeit the contest.
